Tough Trip To Division Champions - 18 August

Holyport make the trip to double, and reigning, One East champions Penn & Tylers Green tomorrow looking to bounce back from a harsh defeat at Milton United last weekend.

Holyport had plenty of chances to put the game to bed before Milton got themselves back into the match and ended up winning 3-2. With Penn winning comfortably against Henley Town (6-0) their confidence will be buoyed going into the game already.

Last season saw plenty of goals in the two games with Holyport on the end of a 4-1 home loss and a 6-3 away loss. Holyport are a much-changed side this season and some new faces who were unavailable last week will feature in the squad. New faces Nathan Green and Joshua Lowther will come into the squad along with Forisky while Ovens and Defranco are unavailable.

Holyport know they will need to be at their best to get anything from the game as Penn went undefeated at home all last season with Rayners Lane the only side to take points in a 1-1 draw as the season drew to a close.


Port Away To Milton - 11 August

Holyport will make their Uhlsport Hellenic League One East 2017/18 season start away to Milton United tomorrow.

It’s been nearly two seasons to the day since the sides last meet, last time it was in the FA Cup and Milton were a Premier Division side. On that day, a host of missed chances came back to haunt Port who went down 1-3 at home.

Regarding the team news there will be a host of debuts for the side as a much-changed side goes forward into the season. Only 11 of the 21 players signed on will be familiar to the Holyport faithful. New faces set to don the new away kit tomorrow are Liam Bradley, Chris Defranco, Fabian Driffill, Charlie Evans, Harry Messitt, Aman Sangha Paul Nicholls, and Carl Slater.

The side will be without Andy Forisky, Joshua Lowther, Chris Hedges and Ben Pulsford who are all unavailable.
